    All-Stars Racing Transformed is, by its nature, a cheery beast, but that's not to say it doesn't have teeth: some of the challenges kick back on even the middle tier of the three initially available difficulty levels, and an unlockable fourth level provides the kind of nasty yet rewarding challenges that some of the best arcade racers are loved for.

    An easily playable though challenging kart game, Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed offers a ton of fun.

    Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is a great variation of the kart-racing theme, and it holds its own against the Mario Kart series. I'd recommend it to not only the few remaining die-hard Sega fans out there, but also anyone who's itching for a more fantastical approach to arcade racing.

    Sumo Digital created a game with a production value that is capable of honoring great series Sega series and a very competent racing game.

    A fun and special race game filled with Sega nostalgia. It may be a little bit sad to think that all these special characters can nowadays only be found in a race game, but Transformed is such a good one, that it doesn't even really matter.

    As a package, it's generous and deep, but Sumo has fallen victim to its own success. While enjoyable in their own right, boats and planes simply can't match the moreish handling of the karts.

A game that's not Mario Kart that's actually better than Mario Kart?! How's that possible. Well it might just be. Unfortunately I can't compare this to the Mario Kart entries made in the past 5 years as I've just not had the chance to play them. You drive a car that transforms into a boat that transform into a plane it just doesn't get any better than this! A truly mindblowing title especially when you see the Afterburner stage. Expand

I myself am a 80's gamer, so there's a lot of nostalgia going on for me here. The game plays like a typical karting game - and anyone who's played any Mario Kart game before will be at home. The tracks are a lot of fun and there's a huge variety of racers to choose from. Many unlockables as well and a couple of surprises as well, like Vyse from Skies of Arcadia! A cool game to have at hand when some friends come to visit. Totally recommend it. Expand

After the decent Sonic 4 and the true return to form that was Sonic Generations now Sega produces one of the best kart racers of this generation. Ok, so it hasn't taken Mario Karts crown but it's close enough to be in Marios slipstream! Expand

The frame-rate is terrible and split-screen is virtually pointless because of this and the sheer amount of garish visual noise being thrown at the screen. The driving mechanic is basic to say the least, the water based game-play feels like a poor mans wave race and the flying is just unbearably sluggish. If you're old enough to get nostalgic about the games this pillages for visual ideas, you're old enough to know that this game lacks any of the characteristics that made those old games great.
